CH Lazy D's Glimmer of Hope

November 30th, 2013

 Hope came into the Stargazer family with a bang!!  She is very outgoing and confident.  She has a beautiful head, gorgeous bone and a temperament to die for!  
A HUGE thanks to Nancy Walker, Kim Wampler and Mark Tichenor for letting this sweet girl come into our family!!

Hope's first 2 ribbons.  She was entered in the 4-6 month class at the show in Marietta, Ohio on Sunday, May 18th, 2014.  She won Beginner Puppy Best of Breed (she was the only Mastiff) but  received "Variety Group Beginner Puppy Second Prize".  There were 4 total dogs in the Working Class.  I am so proud of her!!  Hopefully, these are the first of many ribbons she wins during her show career!!

Hope completed Puppy Kindergarten in April of 2014 and then completed the requirements to obtain the  AKC S.T.A.R. (Socialization, Training, Activity, Responsibility) Puppy certificate on  April 28, 2014

Hope is 6 months and 1 day old in this picture.  I guess she's quite comfy in my recliner!!  LOL
